Proud to see these 3 Beautiful machines flying for our country. Personally know one of the Captains that flew in that formation that day. Quality Shot

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 7, 2012:
Very lucky shot, very lucky!!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Fri December 9, 2011:
Beautiful pic . These are all A340's as A330 only has 2 engines.

A visitor from France posted Wed September 28, 2011:
Five stars for the catch of the day.

To the visitor from the United States... Those two aircraft following the Star Alliance A346 are Airbus A342s (the little brother of the A346), not A330s. The A340, no matter what version you talk about, has four engines; the A330 has only two. You probably confused the CFM56-5s on the A343s with the RR Trents used on the A330.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 18, 2011:
Great photo, and also there is only one a340 the rest are a330's. This is for the people who said "3 a340's"

A visitor from Spain posted Sun September 18, 2011:

A visitor from Germany posted Thu April 13, 2006:
Amazing picture! I have never seen A340s flying formation!!! GREAT

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 13, 2006:
Love it! hope to see this when I go to South Africa! :-)

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 13, 2006:
Dal Bianco caught the exact moment when the three planes were perfectly positioned in relation to each other. In close formation with no overlapping from the viewpoint of the camera ... terrfic!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed April 12, 2006:
Wow nice one! The A340 is just awesome!

Great shot man. You couldn't see me from there, but I could see YOU from up there!!!! (To the other reading this, I was in the A342 on the other side. ZS-SLB)

From your fellow airliners.net photographer Stephan Rossouw

A visitor from Canada posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Not everyday you see 3 A340 flying TOGETHER

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
The A340 is just the most amazing plane. It looks even better in that picture.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue April 11, 2006:
3/3 airbus = 5/5 stars

A visitor from Taiwan posted Tue April 11, 2006:
It was one Airbus and two Boeing last year, lol...Anyway, nice shot!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Very sad they didn't include a 747 this time.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Wow! What a difference from the integration of Swiss on Friday 7th April in Zurich!
I assisted at their ceremony. We remained inside an old hangar throughout the event... and the cocktail that followed was lousy!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue April 11, 2006:
3 heavies in one picture! I love the A340...5***** of course!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
South African's stunning livery with airbus' sleek A340 - what a combination. Add to that a delta formation and what you get is truely awesome

A visitor from South Africa posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Awesome!!! These guys did a test flight on Saturday the 08 April 2006. Passed over me while I was flying over JNB CBD... Amazing!!!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Awesome, what a great sight! Go a34x!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Amazing capture.

I really think that the bad weather allow the dark clouds to blend in with the planes, no?

Well shot, not many oppurtunities like this come in a lifetime.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 11, 2006:
It's great to see Star Alliance arrive in Africa! This has been a long time coming...

A visitor from Germany posted Tue April 11, 2006:
They did it again! Whooho! Excellent!

A visitor from Taiwan posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Very nice!

A visitor from India posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Its Amazing to see a group of Large Commercial Aircraft doing a Flypast together.Guess since its so rare makes things more interesting.
Looks wonderful.Great pic.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Despite the low cloud cover, well exposed, and composed !

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Wonderful! A340-6xx is the most beautiful bird in the skies, but I've never seen a "flock" of them.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Welcome to the Star Alliance SAA from you're partners here at NZ

A visitor from Australia posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Great shot shame the weather was foul. would have been better if it was 3 744

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
How did they do that for all 3 A340 in the air and it doesn't see happen with them. Excellent Shot, Carlo!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
If they would have added a couple of 747-400's on the flanks, it would really have been something else. Nevertheless an awesome pic.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Tue April 11, 2006:
It's amazing to see big planes doing this. Congratulations for the pilots!!!.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Looks beautiful... If only blue skies.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Cool pic! I always like South Africa, been there 5 times...

A visitor from - posted Mon April 10, 2006:
Reminds me of the early days of jet travel, A340's look like the modern day 707s and you can't get a more classy livery than SAA's.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon April 10, 2006:
Incredible! How do they do this?!?

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon April 10, 2006:
Too bad the weather wasnt up for it :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 10, 2006:
Us South Africans sure know how to celebrate, even though I disagree with this partnership!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 10, 2006:
Airbus and SAA at their best!!
